HLA COMPLEX IN WERNER'S DISEASE
Bianco Colmenares, Nicolás E.
During the 8th International Workshop, we studied family 01, where five patients with Werner's disease were identified in the first generation. Werner's Syndrome is a rare entity with a recessive pattern of inheritance where consanguinity between parents is expected to be increased . In our family we found that individuals 300 and 301 were first cousins It is relevant at this point to rep ort that this family comes from Quibor, a small town in Venezuela, where a group of German immigrants sett led in the middle of t he 19th century, creating a highly inbred population. Quibor still maintains some German characteristics in architecture, habits, and people with Caucasian features.
